Product Review: Black Chicken Remedies AXILLA Deodorant Paste


  Over these past few years I’ve been searching for products that are not harmful to others and therefore not harmful to me, a transition and conscious decision to no longer use products tested on animals and now products that contain ingredients that I can pronounce. Your skin is your biggest organ so I began there, with face wash, moisturisers and then deodorant. My boyfriend at the time had never used deodorant as he detested the classic teenage boy gassing of LYNX and insisted on spritzing his underarms with Burberry until he discovered Aseop’s deodorant. That’s where I started. My… Continue Reading

Product Review: Magnetic Lashes


  I put magnets on my eyes because someone said it’d make me look pretty. And so what I should actually be doing right now is having a good long look at myself because, really? But also, and though it shames me a bit to admit this, that’s not even close to the craziest thing I’ve done in search of purchasable perfection. So, look… I saw this Instagram ad for magnetic eyelashes and I was like, yes*. I’d tried and failed at the glue on ones and I wasn’t ready to commit to the longer-lasting beautician applied fakies, so this… Continue Reading

Period Panties – 9.5 new age nappies out of 10


  Have you ever thought about how much waste you (I’m presuming only females are reading this) produce every month from your period? Think of the amount of tampons and pads you go through just in those 4-7 days! Now times that by twelve and then times that by the number of adult females in the world… that’s a lot of gross waste hanging about the earth. It’s become clear that something needs to be done and unlike plastic bags, the solution isn’t as easy as just stop selling them. That would end in disaster. And a lot of blood… Continue Reading

Review – MUD Body Mask


  Mud: it gets on our boots and it’s kind of gross and messy. It is not usually something we think of when it comes to skincare. But here I am, having just rubbed mud all over my skin deliberately. Not your everyday ‘it just rained and I stepped in a puddle’ type of mud, this was a MUD (My Ultimate Detox) Original body mask. MUD’s key ingredient is bentonite clay which has an electrical charge that livens when mixed with water. This allows the clay to attract toxins and impurities out of your skin.   Here is what I… Continue Reading

Review: Good Dye Young


In typical everyday life, we don’t tend to see people walking around with hair that is so bright you need sunglasses just to look at it. But why not? Well now there is nothing holding you back.

Review – Laura Mercier Highlighters


  Highlighters. So many to choose from. Shimmery, glittery, pearly, embossed with brand names and swirly patterns that make them look so pretty you won’t want to ever put your little paws in them. So about a year ago when I officially became a Beauty Bitch for an entire cosmetic department, I would walk around trying to familiarise myself with everyone’s star products so that I would be on top of current trends and so that I would know what the hell I was talking about when people asked me about products from different brands. Look I’ll be honest here,… Continue Reading

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner


  This is my first time trying out Tarte Amazonian clay liners and I decided to go with the boldest of colours. Let’s just say I had spring/summer on my mind even though we’re in the middle of winter down under. The colours I picked are Fairy wings, a true lilac; Cobalt, a deep marine blue with an ultra fine shimmer, my favourite out of the lot; Sprit Animal, a warm shimmery gold; and White and Goldilocks, a bright sunny yellow! I was extremely excited when these came in the mail recently and didn’t waste any time trying them out… Continue Reading

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliners & Cream Eye Shadow


  These little pots of goodness are a new addition to my makeup kit. I love these creamy jewel toned metallic colours. They are great as eyeliners but personally I prefer to use them as cream eye shadows but either way they look stunning. The colours blend effortlessly with a rich colour pay off and look gorgeous when used as a single colour all over the eyelid or blended with another colour to create beautiful shades. They are so simple to use and come in a wide range of colours suitable from day to evening looks for all skin tones.… Continue Reading
